John McCain Supports A Draft

Posted by | August 20, 2008 15:56 | Filed under: Top Stories

And I don’t mean a draft for president.  We’re talking about a military draft.  At the end of this very long statement at a town hall in Las Cruces, NM, John McCain agrees with the questioner, who concludes with:


AUDIENCE MEMBER: If we don’t reenact the draft I don’t think we will have anyone to chase Bin Laden to the gates of hell.


JOHN MCCAIN: Ma’am let me say that I don’t disagree with anything you said and thank you and I am grateful for your support of all of our veterans.


Jon Soltz of says:


“When you take into account his indefinite military commitment to Iraq, his desire to send more troops to Afghanistan, record lows in recruiting and retention, and possibly more wars he is looking to get into, like “Bomb Bomb Bomb” Iran, his numbers don’t add up without a draft. Whether America likes it or not isn’t relevant – a draft is the only way to do everything Senator McCain wants to do. I give him points for being honest and upfront, though, that we’re going to need a draft if he is elected.”
